Is This Haven?

Haven Seasonal Kitchen is nestled behind the trees at the corner of Kirby Dr. and Southwest Fwy and serves up some seriously inspired food. Chef Randy Evans is dedicated to delivering Modern Texas Cuisine that stays true to rural Texas in the purest form. The goal of Chef Evans was to create a place that would highlight the hard work of farmers, ranchers, boatmen and artisans throughout the state – and he has done just that. Not to mention Haven was built to incorporate as many eco-conscious concepts as possible. It was Evans who insisted the entire project and the business operation going forward have a minimal impact on the environment, in fact Haven is certified by the Green Restaurant Association. Evans’ attention to detail and dedication to concept have clearly paid off.  In 2010, Haven was selected one of the “Top 20 Best New Restaurants in the Nation” by Esquire and “Best New Restaurant in Houston” at the Houston Culinary Awards. In 2011, it was Texas Monthly’s “Second Best New Restaurant in Texas,” and one of Southern Living’s “5 Best New Restaurants in the South,” among other accolades.
